Public school facilities have been declining for years in the United States. A recent report notes that the nation is spending $46 billion less than is required to ensure safe and healthy school infrastructure. 
A recent State of Our Schools report, co-produced by three education groups, brought attention to the rampant underinvestment in the nation’s education infrastructure.

The public sector’s $22.6 billion investment in that total will mean contracting opportunities and the likelihood of public private partnerships. 
As ports nationwide prepare for an increase in shipping activity, contracting opportunities for port projects are looming large over the next five years.

One of the nation’s leading experts on the business of government

An entrepreneur who served a decade as a top state regulator and procurement officer, Mary Scott Nabers has been guiding Fortune 100 companies for more than 15 years through the process of developing and delivering solutions to government at every level.
